    This made me laugh. Apologies for enriching shameful stereotypes; I am actually envious of the country in question's interesting accent, culture, and HDI.

    Disclaimer of forethought:not my attention to turn the thread into an acceptability debate.
    Oh, you wacky Brits!

    (I could pretend to take it personally, since I'm a diehard fan of Joyce, my favorite beer besides Sapporo is Guinness, and the best pubs in New York are all Irish-owned... but... what the hey... I'm an alcoholic too!)

    I tried Guinness for the first time on the 4th of April. It smelled like the morning after a party, but tasted like chocolate.

    You seem quite open about drug misuse, would you be willing to start or post in an existing thread about it?

    Somehow I knew you'd either be as clean as a whistle, or as filthy as a jack rabbit in a trash can.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    heh heh... yeah... I'm pretty much what users in America call a lightweight junkie or garbagehead (!) (I say lightweight because I don't use stuff like heroine, morphine or metamphetamines).

    well, there was an addiction thread, but it veered off into chocolates and TV and rot like that... I'm not saying they're not important, but drug use (includes alcohol, because alcohol is a drug, and people need to stop saying alcohol and drugs because it makes it seem like alcohol is somehow better or more benign than) is different to such a degree that it becomes, for all intents and purposes, different in kind.

    You know, if I can't find a (good) drug use thread I'll start my own. Not now though... gotta go study, mate!

    Oh... and there's one thing about Guinness... you redcoats over there like your Guinness warm, with a frothy head. We, on the other hand, drink it chilled (NOT lukewarm).

    As for descriptions, I like that... Guinness smells like "the morning after a party"... in NYC I've most commonly heard it referred to as resembling "motor oil".

    Guiness is too mild. I prefer Imperial stouts and barleywines, when I can get them. The hoppier, the better.

    Oh, and a good hops-forward IPA is kind of my idea of heaven in a glass.

    How about a Victory Hop Devil? It'll hop you up good. And it's from the Philly suburbs.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed every Victory product I have ever had the pleasure to sample. I very much like Hop Devil, but my absolute favorite Victory drink is their Storm King Imperial Stout.

    When it comes to hops, I have two favorites: Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot Barleywine, and Dogfish Head's 90-minute IPA (with 60-minute IPA close behind). Hop Devil is right up there too.

    Have you had the 120-Minute IPA? It's pretty ludicrous. I love the 60 and 90, though. I don't have as much as experience with the barleywines. Imperial stouts are cool, too. I also like the milk stouts and oatmeal stouts (like Samuel Smith). Have you tried an oyster stout?

    Bigfoot Barleywine (a Sierra Nevada product) is not the classic example of the type, as it's rather too hoppy to be a traditional barleywine. It is, however, utterly delicious, and well worth trying.

    I like the milk and oatmeal stouts well enough... I surely won't turn one down... but they're not what I spend my limited beer dollars on.

    As for oyster stouts, I have never been able to abide the flavor of oysters. I am an utter omnivore and can enjoy most any food, but oysters accompany lima beans on the short list of foods I don't like. So I've never cared to sample an oyster stout.
